Man sure does love to twist scripture to suit his or her need. We get that from Satan. I got to thinking about one last night in fact that Satan loves to twist against us Christians.
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
As is we like to twist this one around to say Resist the devil and then submit to God. The only way we can hope to resist Satan is by first submitting to God and His will. The way Satan likes to twist this passage is for us to submit to the devil and resist God and then for good measure God will flee from you.
Truth be told we readily believe that lie. We can’t understand why God would accept us back and we figure His grace must be limited. It is not a matter of God fleeing from us but us fleeing from Him. We can stop twisting scripture but it must start with us submitting to God.
